The one and two-day conferences feature sessions led by educators experienced in effective use of TI technology. Topics focus on developing pedagogy, building content knowledge, and increasing technology skills for math and science instruction.
T³ Regional Conferences are open to all middle grades to university educators who are interested in using educational technology to enhance teaching and learning in mathematics and science. Attendees network with teachers from across the region. Sessions include demonstrations as well as hands-on participation activities. Teachers receive ready-to-use classroom activities and ideas for how to help students learn with TI technology.
